Studio Monkey Shoulder India: Aneesha Kotwani w/ Uzi

To celebrate the launch of Studio Monkey Shoulder, we've organised a special series to spotlight the 5 different countries we're focusing on this year. 

Aneesha Kotwani, based in Mumbai, India, stands out as a creative powerhouse, mixing her skills in artist touring and management, radio, and content creation. At the heart of her projects, WAVLNGTH, is a solid commitment to bridging cultures and amplifying voices that often go unheard.

Aneesha’s show promises a celebration of India and South Asian artists, shining a light on some of her favourite grassroots music communities and spaces across the country and the new generation of music creators.

She'll also be chatting with DJ, curator and talent manager Uzi who runs Beats & Banter – a mid week community platform showcasing alternative music in Hyderabad.

Studio Monkey Shoulder is a new global music initiative dedicated to empowering and celebrating innovative grassroots music communities. Applications are open now in India, the UK, Taiwan, Nigeria and Miami (USA) for a £10,000 fund plus support from Worldwide FM to help bring to life an original project where people come together to connect, create and discover music.
